There is no feeling quite like making your first successful print. The paper slides out of the printer and you discover that a real print, one that you made from capture to finished fine-art print has depth and quality that no monitor can match. It’s almost a religious experience. Exceptional prints are the ultimate expression of the photographic art.
Printing your own images is a transformative experience, but it is also fraught with pitfalls that can be frustrating to work out on your own. With a little help, you can avoid the pitfalls and catapult directly to the joy of seeing your photography in the real world on archival paper.
Modern high-end inkjet printers can produce a range of color and tone unmatched by any screen. Paper selection adds an entire dimension to the display of your art. Of course, printing can be intimidating: pigment vs ink? paper types? What about color profiles? Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start.
During this class, Andrew will take the class through editing and printing image using both Lightroom and Capture One. The class will cover the basics of inkjet printer tech, paper choice and color profiles for print.
Each student will get the chance to print one of their own images as well (bring an edited JPG on a SD card or USB key).
• Basics of Ink Jet Print Technology – Ink v Pigment, Color Mixing, etc.
• Paper Choices
• Color Profiles and Printing
• Prepping and Printing Images from Lightroom & Capture One (Live Printing Demo)
• Hands On Student Prints (1 per student)
- SD Card, USB Key or USB Hard Drive with Image(s) to Print
- (Optional) Laptop to Retouch/Edit Images
This is an all levels class perfect for photographers interested in printing their own photos. It is also suited for photographers struggling to develop an effective print based work flow.
Schedule and Format
This is a demonstration based class with a small hands on portion at the end. The first 30 minutes of class will be used to cover the technical background (tech, paper, profiles). This will be
followed by a live printing demo working from RAW files to finished files. Finally students will be invited to print their own photos (SD or Thumb drive, RAW or JPG) with Andrew’s help.
